check all relays check all fuses etc, check for power on the starter solenoid direct from battery, may be poor connection, check for about 12.2 volts across the battery itself also my advise to you is to take your automobile to your local shop and a qualified technician should be able to diagnose the malfunctioning automobile

Okay we checked all fuses nothing was blown. Hopefully we can get someone to look at it. Thank you I appreciate your response.


check the connection on the starter solenoid and check the battery voltage may be a duff battery! which you should be able to get swapped
